He also said that he wanted to try Indonesian food, Nasi Goreng and Mee Goreng, which is hard to find in Korea. HaHa also added that after arriving in Indonesia, he ate satay and felt that he and his friends are not hard to eat Indonesian food.
When asked about what makes Running Man is still exist until today, Kim Jong Kook said he felt very grateful to the loyal fans of Running Man who keep watching the tv show. Lee Kwang Soo also added that the close relationship between all members is also the reason why Running Man is still a popular tv show.
Ji Suk Jin even expects Song Joong Ki, who had been a member of the Running Man, will be able to return to the show. Song Ji Hyo said the close ties that exists between all members is because of their habit to spend time together, besides the time of filming.
Kim Jong Kook also told that the experience of filming at the zoo in Indonesia is his favorite episode of the show so far, although he needed to be near with a lion. They also promised that fans in Indonesia will be thrilled by the surprises that they have planned, even one of the members will sing to all the audiences.
To close the short yet fun “chit-chat” time, all the members were given Indonesian Batik by Mully Munial from Munial Sports Group as gifts and as the sense of gratitude for their willingness to meet with their fans in Indonesia once again. So, Indonesian Runners, don’t forget to tie your shoes and get ready to have fun!
